In DOS prompt, I setup TNS_ADMIN (For example, set TNS_ADMIN=D:\ ) to point to a location, saying D:\ since I have the customized tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files there. However when I tnsping dbname in the same DOS window, it shows that sqlnet.ora still uses the default one: $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin. Is there anyway to let tnsping use the customized one in D:\ ? I greatly appreciate it if any gurus can shed some light on it.
